In this lesson, Pastor Hamilton highlights a final feature of Calvinism as it shapes the lives of Christians. Calvinism, with its profoundly Trinitarian shape and content, cultivates communion with God. We are struck with such a Trinitarian emphasis as we read Calvin’s Institutes. Perhaps none better expressed this communion with the triune God than John Owen, the great 17th-century English pastor-theologian.
Each member of the Trinity is personally involved in the redemption of His people. In conferring spiritual blessings on believers, each of the three persons of the Trinity plays His respective role. In this lesson, Dr. Charles considers the Trinitarian benediction in 2 Corinthians 13:14 in order to stir up the hearts and minds of Christians to understand more of what blessings they have through God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
